(18)F-FDG PET/CT is an adequate tool for evaluation, diagnosis, and monitoring of the pathology. (18)F-FDG PET/CT may be helpful in the diagnosis of POEMS syndrome. Findings suggestive of POEMS syndrome include mixed bone lesions, lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, and serous cavity effusions. Fluorescein angiography may reveal unilateral pooling of fluid consistent with cystoid macular edema. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) may show loss of retinal nerve fiber layer thickness.
